I enjoy teaching math, but I mostly enjoy getting to know new students each year. Math can be challenging for many, but it also teaches important critical thinking skills and organized problem solving that can help you later in life. Learning math is like learning how and when to use all the tools in a mechanic's toolbox. It is important to know both how and when to use the tool and how the tools can work together to fix the problem.
Let's make this year the best ever.
